Rupees in The Legend of Zelda games have always been quite easy to find, but in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, you can actually go quite a while without ever finding a single Rupee.
You’ll very rarely find them in long grass or rocks like you would previously. There’s still some quite easy ways to get rupees in order to buy a house or complete other awesome tasks in Breath of the Wild, but your strategy will need to be quite different this time around.
You’ll need 3,000 rupees to buy your first house, which could be daunting but SWA Games has created a video detailing exactly how you can get lots of rupees in a short amount of time.
Basically, it involves cooking almost anything you can find. As a basic example, if you cook an Apple, you’ll be able to sell it for 10 rupees in comparison to 2 without it being cooked.
The real money is in making Elixirs and cooking your food items to create proper meals. Anything that gives you hearts can be cooked into food and Any creature which you cook with a monster part will become an elixir. You’ll be able to sell basic cooked food items for 40-50 rupees plus.
But, the best rupee maker is mixing an Endura Carrot with a Stamella Mushroom. These items are not super hard to find and will net you 100s of rupees for each elixir that you sell.
So let us know in the comments below what you’re best rupee making meals have been. It’s well worth experimenting and cooking anything that you find from food items, to material, to critters. There’s a bunch of elixirs that will help you in your journey and if you’re not planning on using them, it’s well worth selling them.
